We call that "mission creep" it's pretty common in the old vehicle game. Here is my 1946 Ford 2N that I was just going to put a $150 clutch in. After mission creep it turned out to be a $1500 clutch and that was a "rehab" not a "restore" with original parts. You're lucky your just thinking of doing it with a bike. The bigger old iron takes a lot more time, money, tools, and space.
